How bad can it get?

An LGBT look at Trump’s first 100+ days Winston Churchill defined tact as “the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip.” Tact is rarely associated with self-congratulatory gropers, so it’s no surprise that President Trump hasn’t been able to convince LGBT Americans to […]

An angel with attitude

Transgressing gender in the Bible

I was raised in Evangelical and Pentecostal traditions where I wasn’t taught to see my transgender self in the Bible.

Ridley Scott delivers another slice of deep-space terror

Acronym puzzles

  Many of us remember Elfrida von Nardroff’s wins, Charles Van Doren’s disgrace, Sputnik and Nixon’s dog. Now such once headlined topics are all trivia; good only for the final Jeopardy question. Great memories and understanding of the past are often of no importance to the younger crowd. I, for one, face constant ridicule for […]
